Running out of pokéballs


#1

I thought the game was supposed to be free ?
In a middle of a hunt it said i’d ran out of pokeballs, so i payed £5 ( UK ) to get 100 more.

Is the only way to get pokeballs to buy them ? If so its gonna get pretty expensive which i don’t want


#2

You could spin pokestops and gym dials


#3

I run out of red ones all the time but I usually have a decent supply of blue and yellow ones just in case.


#4

If I go to a pokestop I get free pokeballs ?


#5

Yes, and doing the same in Gyms as well. You only have to spin the photo-disc


#6

Enjoy, sometimes still using this free-balls I get in situations without balls. But with the time you will learn the middle point between too much catching and too much balls (becuase your stocking space is limited)


#7

Yes. PokéBalls, Great Balls and Ultra Balls. You can also get Berries, Revives and Potions at those.

Just found 4 pokestops and got 4 balls out of each of them! thanks


#9

Theres an ingame tutorial that pops up when first you start the game. I suggest reading it.


#10

You can get Pokeballs at level 1.

At level 5, Razz Berries are unlocked. If you see a rare or strong Pokemon, you may want to use one of those on it, as it will improve your chancs of catching it.


#11

Do you guys buy your Pókeballs or do you go round collecting them for free ?


#12

Personally I don’t buy them. You can find them really easy. I bought them once, but that was by mistake :upside_down_face:
XD


#13

Oh, and: You can also get them as rewards by completing Field Research. The Task itself explains what you need to do.


#14

Fair enough :slight_smile: i just bought 220 to keep me going as a n00b, hopefully i find a few more pokestops, there’s only 4 near me unfortunately.


#15

I think we should earn about 2 or 3 pokeballs each time we catch a pokemon, that would be cool


#16

The pokestops are recharched about 5 minutes after you spin the disc. When the color changes again to light blue, you can give it the next spin and you get again balls.


#17

awesome, thank you


#18

Same with gyms.


#19

Wait, really? I thought it was level 8 :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

I’ve never bought Pokeballs. I only spend the coins I get from defending gyms.
